GIFTSym9 Deadline Extension

Added by Burmester, Elyse 4 months ago

We are happy to announce a Deadline Extension for GIFTSym9.

New Due Date: 24 March 2021

If you're doing innovative work in Adaptive Instructional Systems, we want to hear from you!

The full Call for Papers for GIFTSym9 can be viewed at: https://easychair.org/cfp/GIFTSym9

You can submit your abstract using the EasyChair GIFTSym9 submission site at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=giftsym9

Please share this announcement with anyone you feel may be interested. We are looking forward to learning about all the great work being done.

----Original CFP----

GIFTSym9 is the ninth annual Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT) Users Symposium. GIFTSym9 invites GIFT designers, developers and practitioners to submit technical papers about their ideas, experiences, and lessons-learned in using GIFT to author and evaluate Adaptive Instructional Systems (AIS).

GIFT is an open source, empirically-based, service-oriented framework of tools, methods and standards to make it easier to author computer-based tutoring systems (CBTS), deliver and manage instruction, and assess the effect of adaptive instruction, CBTS, components and methodologies. GIFT is being developed under the Adaptive Tutoring Research Science & Technology project at the Learning in Intelligent Tutoring Environments (LITE) Laboratory, part of the US Army Combat Capability Development Command – Soldier Center’s Simulation and Training Technology Center (CCDC-SC STTC).

Submission Guidelines

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

•Full papers (5-10 pages using template) describing design, application, and/or science-based potential enhancements to GIFT.
•Short papers (3-4 pages using template) describing standards opportunities for AISs. This will form the basis for a separate session on the applicability of standards for AIS development.
•Demonstration (3-4 pages using template) showcasing mature use cases that highlight advancements in GIFT’s utility across performance assessments, pedagogical reasoning and coaching, data visualization, adaptive and intelligent training, and after action reviews.

Submission Schedule

Abstracts are required to be extended abstracts (minimum 800 words) covering the focus of your paper, results/conclusions and recommendations.

The GIFT portal was having issues reaching you. Thank you for being apart of this test. Sorry for any inconvenience. Please standby for an announcement on the upcoming GIFT User Symposium.

Design Recommendations for ITSs Vol 8:Data Visualization

Added by Sinatra, Anne 7 months ago

The Design Recommendations for Intelligent Tutoring Systems: Volume 8 – Data Visualization Book is now published and available for download! The book is free, and is available in the documents tab of gifttutoring.org or through this link: https://gifttutoring.org/documents/154

This book on Data Visualization is the 8th in a planned series of books that examine key topics (e.g., learner modeling, instructional strategies, authoring, domain modeling, assessment, team tutoring, self-improving systems, data visualization, competency based scenario design) in intelligent tutoring system (ITS) design. This book focuses on data visualization. The discussion chapters in this book examine topics through the lens of the Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT). GIFT is a modular, service-oriented architecture created to reduce the cost and skill required to author ITSs, distribute ITSs, manage instruction within ITSs, and evaluate the effect of ITS technologies on learning, performance, retention, transfer of skills, and other instructional outcomes.
